If I Not Meant Nor Drink Nor Slumber

Bit of a slow weekend... lot's of rain. Most of it was spent photographing my work on a seamless white backdrop again. Not that interesting I know, but something that has been long overdue. Everything is getting shot large format and after I clean them up in Photoshop, I'll be achieving them away and adding more portions to the website. The main bulk of what was shot this past weekend was my experimental books that were created in 1997 & 1998. I'm considering adding a video portion for these pieces on the website. It's very time-consumming to put an image of every page from them onto the site. I think a video of the books being handled will work just as well.

Tonight I will begin upgrading my website to FLASH 8. This will allow me to add video portions to the site much easier than before — something I didn't even want to attempt in FLASH 7. It will also take care of the font issues I've been having, as far as legibility goes. I will probably update the site this weekend. It will then run only on Flash Player 8.

I'm also going to try and get the Graphic Design section added to the site... I've had some potential clients asking to see that type of work. unfortunately for me... it's just another lengthy section to start working on.
